Behavioral Response Programs

Mission: Behavioral Response Programs (BRP) is a Division of Student Success Services that takes a planned and proactive approach to identifying and assisting students who are distressed and/or exhibiting abnormal, threatening, or dangerous behavior. Through early identification, BRP aims to connect students with the resources they need to be successful and prevent crises. The work of the BRP includes coordination of the Behavioral Response Team (BRT) as well as consultation services and campus outreach.

  • Behavioral Response Team (BRT) - An extension of BRP is the Behavioral Response Team. The BRT is a multidisciplinary team that meets weekly to assess and manage concerns that have been brought to its attention.
  • Consultation Services - Because of their constant interaction with students, KSU faculty and staff are in the best position to help identify students who are precipitating towards crisis. We know that those in need of help are oftentimes more likely to confide in a faculty member than to seek professional help. Consultation is available to faculty, staff, and students who have concerns about a member of the campus community but are uncertain about how to proceed.
  • Campus Outreach – BRP provides training in best practices in dealing with distressed, disruptive, or dangerous individuals. We also provide general trainings to faculty, staff and student groups interested in learning more about the role of Behavioral Response Programs on our campus.
